In 2016 ROTFELD-Consulting was founded by Uwe Stenglin as "innovation laboratory for lateral thinkers in the plastics industry”.
DIPRO®mat GmbH in Adelshofen was founded in 2020 as a spin-off from the ROTFELD network for the production of thermoplastic materials for additive manufacturing.
In the second quarter of 2020, the cooperation with a network partner for the production of filament specialties, e.g. with carbon fiber reinforcement and PPA filaments for high-temperature applications and metal replacement, started.
The production of AF materials started in October 2020:
Filament materials for FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) and granulates for FGM (Fused Granules Modelling) will be compounded. For Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), high-quality powders can be produced thanks to the existing cryogenic grinding.
Production of radiation-crosslinkable polymers, high-performance thermoplastics and thermoplastic elastomers also started in the 4th quarter of 2020.
The strategic goal is to offer medium-sized and smaller thermoplastic processors the opportunity to obtain their materials directly from the manufacturer and to develop innovative compounds tailored to the application in cooperation with DIPRO®mat.
In the DACH area (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), direct cooperation with DIPRO®mat is possible without distributors. Small and medium quantities are welcome.
In addition, your development inquiries for special polymers and blends can be handled.
